Week 8 and the row count is 208. I am onto the ‘Police Public Call Box’ sign which I am doing in black. The chart has crocheted letters but my intention is the embroider them on later. This is mainly so I can get the ‘Public Call’ bit of the sign in there too. It would annoy me beyond all reason if it just said Police Box.
My major discovery this week is that double crochet doesn’t make for a long blanket. I am 32 rows away from finishing the charted pattern and the blanket only comes up to my mid-waist. I had suspected that it would not be long enough which was why I added the roof but I now think it may need even more height. My current plan is to add the text ‘Type 40 TARDIS’ above it. This will mean I have doubled the original row count of 240 to 480. Heaven forfend I ever decide to make another one but, if I did, I think treble crochet might be more sensible next time.
This week’s quote is from a rather underwhelmed Sontaran in The Invasion of Time. We’re on to The Two Doctors now and I am hoping Number 2 will be sniffy about Number 6’s console room so I get a good quote. Crumbs!
